FireFox quality

I am using FC4 and i have Firefox 1.0.4 and my question is the font and quality of the images are not as good and not consistent from site to site as if i am running the same pages on Windows with M$ explorer or even running Firefox on windows. Have any one else experienced the same problem? I am asking the question because I want to move completely from windows into Linux but I need to know if i will get the same effects and quality that I get with windows. Do you guys think that i might missed a font package or is there a spacifi packages to increase the quality of the font in FireFox?

Thanks Alot

Ya, Fedora usually has MS True Type Fonts RPM packages floating around the web somewhere.

here you go I followed the instruction on this site and it worked. now firefox font looks the same as M$ explorer.
Also, if you don't find your answers on that website just do a search on google for "microsoft font for linux" or "truetype font for linux"
